My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 30 (Every End Begins)


My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 30

(Every End Begins)

yogachallenge

[ I fell in love with Yoga ]

On the front of my Fall 2014 Class Schedule reads:

Fall in LOVE with Yoga

When I got the schedule upon getting my gift of 30 Days of Unlimited Yoga, I definitely didn’t notice this written on the trifold, nor do I think that I would have believed its message even if I had noticed it…

But on this 30th day of my 30 Day Yoga Challenge, I can truly say that I fell in love with Yoga.

[ The Experience ]

This entire experience has been so lovely.  I can’t believe I am saying that! I mean, 30 days ago, I thought yoga people were weird (and I still kinda do); and now, I am one of them weird folk!  Gladly!

Yoga has helped me to stay chill within chaos, it has allowed me to open up and be more heart-centered.  Yoga has really been a great addition in my life.

Like, today, I went to work for my friend at her “local foods” restaurant/ corner grocery store.  It was ridiculously busy, yet I wasn’t phased by the non-stop influx of customers and their need of me to give them the best service possible.  At one point, one of the regulars even said, “wow, it’s so busy here, and this is your first day.  But you seem so chill about it.”

Though I think it went over her head, I simply replied,

I do yoga.

[ The Takeaway ]

Today is my 30th day of consecutive yoga practice.

It is also my 107th consecutive day of chanting and meditation.

I’m not sure which of the two practices have influenced my well-being the most, but all I can say is that something is working. So, I’ll just keep on doing what I’m doing.

Winter Solstice 2014
Winter Solstice 2014

The shortest day will come in 17 hours of this final journal entry. It will welcome the Winter Solstice, and simultaneously welcome longer days. I may have completed this 30 Day Challenge, but as every end begins, I look forward to continuing this “weird yoga stuff”, as the days and season change henceforth, and new beginnings spring forth.

I am grateful I got this gift of 30 Days of Unlimited Yoga. I am grateful for the teachers who have taught me.  But, more than anything, I am grateful for myself for doing this challenge for my SELF.  It has truly been a priceless gift.

Oh, and thank YOU for sharing in the experience!

PS: Yin and Kundalini Yoga are my favorites I think.

Have YOU fallen in love with Yoga yet? 🙂

My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 18 (Salute The Sun)


My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 18

(Salute The Sun)

yogachallenge

[ Basking in the Sun ]

I feel on top of the world.  I feel so high on life that I fill the warmth upon my skin from a sun that illuminates from within.  Everyday I have something to celebrate, like this:

As I ride this wave of celebrating milestone upon milestone, I salute the sun.

[ Saluting Synchronicity: An Aside ]

So, I went to grab that image of my 2 year Sober Birthday on my Facebook page and this pops up on my news feed:

So, I pick a crystal, and as synchronicity would have it, I am attracted to:

And post this response…

Screen Shot 2014-12-08 at 10.15.15 PM

It appears as I salute the sun, the sun is saluting me, in synchronicity.

[ The Experience ]

I did my practice at-home today. I wanted to keep it simple, and focused on repetition of the Sun Salutation, Surya Namaskar.

Sun Salutation is probably the most famous yoga sequence and there is a good reason for it. Sun Salutations stretch all the major muscle groups of the body, relax the mind, and help you to deepen your breath. Barbora Moravkova from Ayurveda Holistic Medicine presents an easy step by step guide on how to practice Sun Salutation (Surya Namaskar). Sun Salutation is a wonderful way to start your day, reduce your stress and ground your body & mind for the day. So, if you are looking for ways how to reduce stress, this is it.

Here’s a great poster image:

Welcome to Karli Yoga Shop. We have a new DVD instructional yoga with Qualified and Deaf Yoga Instructor, Karli Dettman, for you to buy to continue practice yoga in the privacy of your homes. We also have two Karli Yoga posters for order to put up on your walls to remind you to practice yoga regularly. What a great way to maintain good health overall.

[ The Takeaway ]

The more I do this practice of yoga for myself, first and foremost, I am amazed at how in tune I am with the flow of life.  Yoga opens me up to the magical world that is around me. Whether I do 4 Sun Salutations or an hour and 15 minute class of any type of yoga, I feel fulfilled.  Yoga is truly, for every body, and for any where.

[ Another realization ]

The #18 in Jewish Tradition, Chai, is a symbol that means life.  I don’t talk a lot about my Jewishness, but when I am so aware of life as I am now, things like this stick out (and probably for a reason)…

I feel so alive and filled with life right now.  I am co-creating my life and loving every moment!  How appropriate to be at day 18 of my challenge.

Yoga is helping me to live my LIFE fully.

Life feels good. 🙂

My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 11 (Synchronicity)


My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 11

(Synchronicity)

yogachallenge

[ Exactly What I Need ]

Yesterday I did my Yoga practice at-home.  This morning, I was revived, feeling alive and as if I’d not even had a dip in my wellness 24 hours prior.

I was thinking about taking one more day for at-home work, and decided I felt well enough to participate in a 4PM Hatha Yoga Session.

It appears, Monday 4PM Hatha seems to be the right fit for me and my schedule.  Both times I have participated, the teacher I thought would be there was replaced by others.  I suppose he is no longer teaching any more.

Fortunately, my first 4PM Monday Hatha Yoga and today’s class were exactly what I needed.

[ The Experience ]

My life is just one big wave of synchronicity and I am riding it like a champion surfer.  I am also regularly engaged in lucid dreaming, and have been since I was a young girl.  It has only been in the last year that I realized what lucid dreaming is and that I’ve been doing it for most of my life (I’d dare say at least 25 of my 31 Earth Years).

This morning, I awoke from a dream wherein I was doing a lot of pushups.  Like, A LOT, of push ups.

I felt strong and capable.

Flash forward to the Yoga Class today, and our teacher had us doing a LOT more planks than I’ve experienced thus far in this challenge. Yet, I had done them before (in my dream), so I felt strong and capable, slowly lowering myself down with full presence and in relaxed breath, each and every time.

We also did a lot of the work I did in my home-practice last evening, including a variation of the lymphatic bouncing I did.  As we tapped our leg meridians, I was grateful for the abundant synchronicity tying today and yesterday’s practice together seamlessly.

[ The Takeaway ]

If you are breathing, you are doing yoga.

That really stuck out to me in class. I also found I closed my eyes more today than I have this entire 30 Day Yoga Challenge.

I am listening to my SELF. I trust myself and my abilities. (Confidence boost)

And as I do what my body needs, I keep getting more of what it needs without trying.

[ Question For You ]

Do you do Yoga? Why or why not?
